Question Everything Special Edition Vinyl Video Explanation by guitarist Jason Ashcraft,
The special edition was produced by Helion Prime guitarist Jason Ashcraft and Alex Nasla, who also remixed/remastered the record to better fit its vinyl experience. The original artwork also went under a small make-over for a classic marble wall vibe. The special edition features a brand new song Wash Away, which continues the theme of Question Everything and was written about Ignaz Semmelweis, the doctor who discovered the disease-fighting power of hand-washing in 1847.
The bonus material on the special edition also includes cover versions of Children Of Bodom’s Angel’s Don’t Kill with a guest guitar solo from Garrett Peters and Nightwish’s The Pharaoh Sails To Orion with guest vocals from Carlos Zema (Immortal Guardian) plus a guest guitar solo by Garrett Peters.
Question Everything is Helion Prime’s first album with new vocalist Mary Zimmer, who has also accompanied the band on two separate tours of the United States. The album also saw the band’s original singer, Heather Michele, returning in a writing capacity and contributing all lyrics and melodies. Heather Michele also along with other former Helion Prime vocalist Sozos Michael and with John Yelland (Judicator/Dire Peril) add their guest vocals on the full length.
The third record is a concept album, with each song revolving around different influential figures throughout human history who had the courage to question the status quo of their respective worlds/societies, in some cases even dealing with harsh persecution as a result. Those Helion Prime chose to write about faced prejudice, mockery, ex-communication, and persecution – yet through it all, they held true to their beliefs and ideas. Time would be their greatest ally as their ideas and identities were eventually validated, oftentimes not until after their passing. They serve as an inspiration for all minds to continue thinking outside the box and staying true to themselves.
